Thanks for visiting my blog! Please contact me if you're thinking about purchasing a Mercedes-Benz in the

The 2014 Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive is scheduled to be released this summer in CA, CT, MD, OR, NJ, NY, RI and VT in early 2015 for the rest of the US. This is the fist full electric for us as well as the first time we will get the B-Class. Based on previous hybrid launches I am guessing you will need to order early to get yourself a B-Class Electric Drive! I would not expect to see them sitting on the lot waiting to find a home. Get yourself on the list if you know you want this technology!

“Mercedes’ Tuscaloosa County plant is having a major growth spurt right now, as it prepares to launch production of the C-Class sedan next year. But there won’t be any trips to the off-road test track for that model.
“You could go 70 percent downhill – once,” Grossmann joked. “Then it’s done.”
Here’s a great video of the new 2015 C-Class in motion. It is amazing how much it resembles the 2014 S-Class and how many features are carrying over! This may be European information so engines and options could vary for the US model.
